A SENIOR British police officer who admitted to having sex while on duty will face disciplinary action after being cleared of criminal charges.

Inspector Masood Khan, 41, who works for British Transport Police, faces three charges under the Police Code of Conduct over his tryst with a 43-year-old woman in a room at Gatwick Airport railway station in July 2006.

Media reports said the inspector had met the woman through an internet dating website, uniformdating.com, and had believed he would be off-duty when he arranged to meet her.

He had kept his earpiece in during the 20-minute rendezvous so he would be in radio contact with his colleagues in case of emergencies, the reports added.

“It was absolutely the wrong thing to do, morally and professionally. I should never have done it,” he told the jury at London's Southwark Crown Court in August, before it found him not guilty of misconduct in public office.

The Independent Police Complaints Commission today said the disciplinary hearing was due to take place on November 28.
